A comfortable, casual sweatshirt is the number one piece of everyday wear. This Elefantti shirt has it all: a high zip collar, a kangaroo pocket and ribs on the hem and cuffs. The inside is brushed soft. There's a nice terry stamp on the chest – a sympathetic elephant figure, inspired by Laina Koskela's familiar pattern. Pair this sweatshirt with jeans or Elefantti terry pants and enjoy.
The sweatshirt is made of 100% organic cotton, the cultivation of which makes more efficient use of rainwater. Also natural fertilisers and pesticides are used in the cultivation.
Ordinary daily life defines much of our existence. Part of good daily life is having clothes that make life as enjoyable as possible. The cornerstones of the Arkismi collection are Finnish design, timelessness of clothing and sustainable materials and production. The aim is for the garment to be versatile and easy to combine. It’s also important that the item feels nice against the skin and body. Most of the patterns we use are familiar Finlayson favourites, but we also introduce something new and exciting every season, possible classics of the future.
The Arkismi collection was designed by the Finlayson team and Finnish everyday life. The clothes are sized to fit as many body types of all shapes and sizes as possible.
Story of the Elefantti pattern: Created by Laina Koskela in 1969, this pattern is the result of a design competition organised by Finlayson and the Helsinki Industrial Arts School. The idea for the pattern was born at the last minute, under pressure. Laina's mum had sewn a home-made stuffed toy for her brother. The toy had four legs, a trunk and hanging ears. With this toy in mind, Laina began to work on her idea of the design.
The Elefantti print fabric came to the market in Sweden in 1970, in Finland a couple of years later. The Elefantti pattern was then forgotten until 2013, when Finlayson took it back into production.
The Elefantti is one of Finlayson’s most beloved classics, both sympathetic and stylish. The recipe for the success of the charming Elefantti can be summed up in handmade lines, simplicity, universality, positivity and timelessness.
